America’s national pastime is back! And we absolutely love it. Not for the reasons you might think but for the sole reason that last year we correctly predicted the Chicago Cubs over the Cleveland Indians in the World Series. No big deal you say? Every sports book had the Cubs as pre-season favorites. That may very well be but not one, not one, ESPN baseball expert had the Cubs playing the Indians in the World Series. As a matter of fact, only one ESPN baseball expert had the Indians in the World Series but up against the Giants. No, my loyal Kandy reader, when it comes to baseball, Kandy knows best. And, we have the proof to back it up. Download the April 2016 issue to read for yourself.
So, what does our crystal ball tell us for this season? Read on to find out who we say will be playing in this year’s Fall Classic.
